Agricultural technology is the technology used in agriculture for working farmland and caring for animals. The tools utilized for this can be used in both stationary and mobile situations. This industry also deals with systems for animal husbandry, process technology in the production of various crop plants, and mechanical engineering.
The functionalities of agricultural tools include various processes to control and support the life cycle of plant or animal products. Therefore, in plant production the machines are used for the cultivation of arable land, the planting of seeds, their watering, harvesting, processing and packing. In animal husbandry, the tools are used for tasks including the preparation, dosage and mixing of feeds, as well as for the basic processing of animal products.
As well as manufacturing, the sale and servicing of these agricultural tools are also some of the sub-sectors of this industry. Other topics in agricultural technology relate to the field of energy technology, waste processing and the provision and use of renewable raw materials.Agricultural technology includes a variety of equipment. From agricultural machinery for forestry and arable farming, to equipment such as front loaders or mixing wagons that are used on the farm. Agricultural machinery and vehicles can be roughly divided into four different categories. These include livestock rearing, forestry technology, agricultural vehicles and crop growing. In crop growing, there is also a difference between equipment for soil cultivation and for pasture land.
Agricultural vehicles include tractors, which can be equipped with additional accessories such as front loaders, in order to enable more versatile use.
Their control systems have already been successfully equipped with our components. Wheeled loaders and telescopic loaders are further applications.
MRS products can be used in a variety of arable farming machinery such as plows, cultivators and sowing machines.
The equipment is in close contact with the soil and for this reason it must also have precise, robust control mechanisms, which can be achieved using MRS products.
The cultivation of pasture land includes a variety of harvesting processes, as well as protective mechanisms to guard the plants from pests.
Our technologies are already being successfully used in numerous pieces of pasture land machinery and have also been used to convert measurements in mowing machines.Our products have also been used for the efficient control of spray nozzles on field sprayers. Further areas of application include round balers and rotary rakes.
Forestry primarily includes the planting and clearing of areas of woodland. Another area of operation is the transport and processing of logs. Management and control systems for wood splitters and choppers can be developed using our products.
Further areas of operation include loading grabbers, forestry cranes and forestry vehicles to transport the logs.
There are a variety of technologies in animal husbandry, which are used for the maintenance, welfare and care of livestock. Feed mixing wagons, spreaders or pushers, as well as massage devices, are just a few examples that are suitable for the use of our products.
